State and Society
Martin Pugh's volume offers a vigorous new interpretation of political and social developments in Britain since the late-Victorian era. With the skill and insight that characterize his earlier books, he explores as his central theme the relationship between the British state and its citizens. 'State and Society' reveals a refreshingly wide range of interests, integrating the history of women into the mainstream of British historical change and providing a new interpretative framework for the political and social developments of the period. It offers a welcome perspective on the past...and the present.
